How should lawyers behave? Legal "Ethics" and Free Software


Legal issues are at the heart of FOSS, and lawyers play an important role in the creation and adoption of free software. Around the world, legal practice is constrained and governed by different rules outlining who lawyers can represent, how they can interact with their clients, the nature of advice they can give, how they deal with conflicts of interest and what information they must keep confidential. This panel will talk about how legal ethics plays out specifically for free software.
